- Download a minimal bootable CD image (or a couple of floppy disk images). Are you sure you really need the full CDs? You can just get the basic installation system - it will download the rest of the distribution if and when needed during the installation.
- Buy finished Debian CD-ROMs. They are cheap - we do not make any profit with them! If your Internet connection is charged by the minute, this is your only choice. You might also consider buying the CDs if you only have a modem, as downloading the images via modem takes days.
- Download CD/DVD images with jigdo. The "jigdo" scheme allows you to pick the fastest out of 300 Debian mirrors worldwide for your download. It features easy mirror selection and "upgrading" of older images to the latest release. Also, it is the only way to download Debian DVD images for all architectures.
- Download CD/DVD images with BitTorrent. The Bittorrent peer to peer system lets many users cooperatively download images at the same time, with minimal load on our servers. DVD images are only available for some architectures.
- Download CD/DVD images using HTTP or FTP. Due to space and bandwidth constraints, only very few mirrors are able to supply direct HTTP/FTP download links. These sites may use bandwidth throttling, downloads can be quite slow. Please use jigdo or bittorrent instead. DVD images are only available for some architectures and not on all mirrors.
Debian is available for different computer architectures - make sure you are getting images that match your computer! (Most people will need images for "i386", i.e. Intel systems.) Once you have created your own CDs, you might be interested in the artwork for covers of Debian CDs.
3)Download the installation system from the Internet, and get the rest by downloading as you install.
This sort of network installation process requires either an analogue PPP dialup connection to your Internet provider, or Internet access via Ethernet (possibly using a PCMCIA card in your laptop). Unfortunately, it does not support internal ISDN cards.
There are two options for installs over the network:
- Minimal CD: Instead of getting a full 650MB CD image, you just download a CD image file which contains the bare essentials necessary to install the rest. For the moment, it's necessary to have access to a CD recorder in order to use this.
- Floppy disks: You download a couple of floppy disk images (files the size of a floppy disk), write them to floppy disks, and then start the installation by booting from the those diskettes.
4)Buy a computer with Debian pre-installed.
